A powerpoint I use during my workshops. Creatures on opening screen (greenfly, earth to highlight amount of green plant life, blackbird, honey bee, snail, fox, sparrowhawk, ladybird larvae, blue tit) can be used to make a food chain or web (blue tits eat green fly too). Rose-->greenfly-->ladybird larvae-->blue tit--->sparrowhawk
All creatures in rest of ppt (woodlice, snails, frogs, millipedes) are found in many school grounds and include mention to their adapted features. Hope it comes in useful - please visit my website www.wildworkshops.co.uk and book a science visit for your class!
The first week involving a literacy plan for learning about newspapers, including their structure. The plan involved the 2012 Olympics but also used nursery rhymes to help frame how a newspaper column is laid out.
A week's planning including worksheets and teaching aides introducing the children to the formal method of division (referred in plans as the bus stop method). Also included are related word problems and extensions.
The children often struggled with questions that masked to work out a missing coordinate so I pulled all the previous SATs questions I could find on this to go through and explain them. I also made a game to add in the missing point on a grid with four quadrants to make 2D shapes.

Pet cards and skin texture boards. Children to sort the cards onto the correct board, depending on which skin type they have. Can provoke discussion around why animals have certain skins (temperature regulation, protection, sensory needs). Could also introduce camouflage.
The book is designed to support new and existing science teachers. It put together a number of old and new ways to inspire students and engage them in their learning. This is particularly useful for new and trainee science teachers as it gives ideas and guidance, all in one place.
This is a merge of the 3 book in the series of making science engaging and memorable through the use of investigations and demonstrations.
This book contains all 150 demonstrations and investigations from the 3 books that are also available separately.
